Don't forget to add salt or this will be very bland I added a few pinches of crushed red pepper. It still didn't have much taste but nothing that mayonnaise honey-mustard or ranch dressing can't help! Read More

These were very dry. I made them again with seasoned bread crumbs and about a tablespoon of butter to moisten the bread crumbs. The cornmeal made it too dry. I also added some shreded cheddar cheese. Read More

I don't like all the grease but if you ad three more eggs you can cook it as a quiche-type-thing in the oven. Just remember to grease the pan. Read More

I did make a change and used a combo of flour and Panko because I didn't have cornmeal. That's why the 3 stars. Not sure if that was it but they were dry and not what I expected at all. Read More

Just okay. I added some salt and some flour too because the cornmeal alone wasn't binding the way I wanted it to. I used frozen broccoli and thawed and strained it first. I served them with spicy ketchup. Read More
